Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

Dropped:( Recently I dropped my Ipod classic 80 GB, on the floor. It wasn't a very hard fall and I just picked it up and turned it off. I didn't used it more that day but the next day when I plucked it into the computer it started to act wierd. The screen was all white and with a black text it's written "do not disconnect" as it was supposed to, but it looked all wrong when all the colours were missing. Itunes said it needed to be restored, but when i click "yes" nothing happens. When I try to open the Ipod in this computer it just freeze. When I pluck my Ipod out the screen is just write and the black text says "ok to disconnect". I have tried to restart it many times but nothing really happen. I used it as an external harddisk also so I had a lot of important documents on it. Is there anything I can do?

Sir, i have a apple ipod classic 80 gb but recently i cannot hear at one side of the headphone may be the reason i hve dropped it so i need to know how much cost to fix it in ...


Usually if you can only hear sound from one side of the headphones then it is often due to a problem with the headphones rather than the iPod.
Try a different pair of headphones and see if the audio improves. Otherwise, I would recommend inRepair, based in india to get a quote on a repair.

I dropped my ipod classic 80 gb. It can't be detected when i sync to my computer. I did a hard restart but it it says that my files will be deleted when i restore it with itunes. I dont wanna lose my files...


The only way to save the files is by connecting it to pc and storing them in a file. Try checking the usb connection inside the ipod. If there are any broken wires or solder joints, re-solder them or anything you can do to get it to connect.

Try connecting it, go to control panel, the ipod should be able to found on the I: drive.

How do you open an ipod classic?


Open the iPod classic and clean the logic board. If that doesn't help, the board needs replacement (it is available on ebay. ) Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.
